Big Projects, Big Ideas – are we getting enough out of our major transport projects.

Victoria is undergoing unprecedented investment in major transport projects, from Metro Tunnel to Westgate Tunnel to Level Crossings, and the in procurement North East Link Project. Are these projects delivering the best value for money that they could, how do we ensure they are successful and are there alternative investment options that we should be considering?
Big Projects, Big Ideas – are we getting enough out of our major transport projects.

Victoria is undergoing unprecedented investment in major transport projects from Metro Tunnel to Westgate Tunnel to Level Crossings and the in procurement North East Link Project and future projects like Melbourne Airport Rail and Suburban Rail Loop.

Given the tens of billions of dollars invested and committed on these projects are they delivering the best value for money that they could, are we picking the right projects in the first place and how do we ensure they are successful? We also must consider whether alternative investment options should be considered to help manage demand and get more out of our existing assets.

At this event, guests will have the opportunity to hear from three leading practitioners in the field of strategy and project assessment and development to understand more about the decision making process that leads to major projects, what alternatives are available and what benefits we need to get when we spend billions of dollars on single projects.
